PSE&G Gas Meter Inspection Program
Beginning this month (June, 2016), PSE&G will be inspecting natural gas meters throughout its gas service territory to ensure the continued safety and reliability of gas services. It is important for us to conduct safety inspections like these so that we can check for surface corrosion, leaks and other conditions that might require attention or repair. Approximately 400,000 outside and inside meters will be inspected across PSE&G’s service territory through year-end.
HOW DOES THE GAS INSPECTION WORK?
- If a gas meter is located inside a home or business, a technician will ask to gain access to do a visual inspection.
- Gas meters must be accessible for visual inspection when a technician arrives. The scope of the inspection is from the location where the piping enters the building to the outlet of the gas meter.
- Someone over the age of 18 must be home for PSE&G to do the inspection.
- For safety reasons, technicians may ask customers to secure dogs or other pets while he or she performs the inspection.
HOW WILL CUSTOMERS HEAR ABOUT THE GAS METER INSPECTIONS?
A letter will be sent to all residents and press releases will be issued in towns where inspections are taking place, prior to the start of inspection work. In addition, if a technician is unable to gain access to a home for the meter inspection, he or she will leave a door hanger with information about the gas meter inspection and try to complete the inspection at a future date. If unable to complete the inspection during the second attempt, the technician will leave information on how to schedule an inspection.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD CUSTOMERS KNOW?
- Natural gas meters are inspected every 3 years as part of a BPU requirement.
- The gas meter safety inspection is free and will take about 10 minutes.
- Unless the meter requires immediate repair, there will be no interruption to service.
- This visit is for inspection purposes only. Service will not be turned off during this inspection due to billing status.
- Safety and security is important to us. If a customer has concerns about a utility worker at their door, they can call us at 800-436-PSEG (7734) to verify the identity of an employee.

Summer is finally here, and while that means sunny days and outdoor activities, it also means that ozone season is upon us. Ground-level ozone, an air pollutant created on hot summer days when sunlight and heat cause other air pollutants (including those emitted from cars, trucks and power plants) to react in the air, damages our lungs, particularly impacting children and people with existing health problems. The good news is that there are ways you can reduce your exposure to ozone and help improve our air quality by making simple changes in your routine. Below are some free services and materials that will make it easier for you to learn how to do this and help educate your constituents.
The Department’s new website (www.cleanair.nj.gov [http://www.cleanair.nj.gov]) is a readily accessible source of information about the health and environmental effects of ozone. The site also provides simple tips for reducing your exposure and your contribution to ozone formation.
The Department has three new color brochures that explain about the health effects of ozone and focus in on the number one source of air pollution in NJ – transportation. The printable versions of our brochures can be found at http://www.nj.gov/dep/cleanairnj/outreach.html [http://www.nj.gov/dep/cleanairnj/outreach.html]. If you’d prefer pre-printed copies for your next event, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
EnviroFlash is a free email alert system that delivers daily information about air quality in you communities and lets you know how to change your outdoor activities to protect the health. Go to www.enviroflash.info [http://www.enviroflash.info/], fill in your email address and zip code, and select the type of message that you’d like to receive. You can also access EnviroFlash directly off the Department’s new website at http://www.nj.gov/dep/cleanairnj/airquality.html [http://www.nj.gov/dep/cleanairnj/airquality.html].
The Department’s new website also allows you to sign up for an email list to get periodic messages about the health effects of smog and actions that children and adults can take to reduce smog.
